Don’t let your outdoor living space withstand one more Northeast Ohio winter without the protection it deserves. Chances are your deck has been a workhorse for your family this summer more than any other. Before the flakes start to fly, Joe Jacobs, owner of Chagrin Home Improvements, and his crew will repair, clean and stain your deck now so you can enjoy it the rest of this season, while also having you ready for next season.

“The time is now to get on the fall schedule and have your deck taken care of before it’s too late,” says Joe. “Soon you’ll have to wait six or seven months before we can do it in the spring. By then it may be too damaged to restore with a cleaning and staining job. More extensive repairs, or even replacement may be necessary, depending on the deck’s condition. Let’s get it taken care of now.”

The Northeast Ohio winters wreak havoc on our decks. There’s only one way to extend the life of this outdoor living space and that’s to have it cleaned and stained by the professionals at Chagrin Home Improvements every few years.

“Many home improvements are costly, time consuming and must be planned well in advance before they can be executed,” says Joe. “We can do your deck repair, cleaning and staining in two or three days, and it’s one of the most inexpensive, yet necessary and value-increasing, investments you will make in your home.”

Not to mention it looks great. As far as bang for your buck in home improvements, there aren’t many things that make a difference like a beautiful deck. And the time is now to get on the fall schedule before the bad weather hits.

“And the best news is since we only take two or three days, you can be back out there enjoying your deck well into the fall,” says Joe. “Don’t think you’re closing down this space once we start the job. We are in and out efficiently with minimal disruption to your home and family.”

Joe will first make any minor repairs like refastening loose floorboards, replacing rotted ones and sinking lifted nails. He then thoroughly cleans and washes the deck, applies a transparent or solid stain and seals it.

“My crew is made up of all local, full-time professionals who take pride in their work and will never disappear on you between steps,” says Joe. “They are lifelong friends who are amazing at their jobs. And don’t worry about being home when the work is being done. From the quote all the way to the finished product, we never need to make contact with anyone in the home. We arrive on time and get to work. Everyone has their job to do and they get it done.”

Joe loves to see how his customers react when they see their freshly cleaned, stained and sealed decks but he also knows the dark side of a neglected deck and how important it is to keep up with deck maintenance.

“The good news is that if the job is done right, like it is with us, you’ll only need to do this every two or three years,” says Joe.

If you sign a contract by October, Joe will guarantee you a spot on the schedule this fall and you’ll be enjoying your beautiful, well protected deck, for years.
